MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The first person to plead guilty in Alabama's gambling corruption investigation is seeking probation.

Former Country Crossing casino lobbyist Jennifer Pouncy pleaded guilty to conspiracy in 2010. Her attorney, Tommy Spina, has filed court papers stressing her early cooperation with investigators and her testimony at two trials. He also said nothing would be served by taking the 36-year-old woman away from her husband and young son.

Pouncy is scheduled for sentencing Wednesday in Montgomery by U.S. District Judge Keith Watkins. She faces a maximum of 5 years in prison.

Her boss, lobbyist Jarrod Massey, also pleaded guilty and is serving a sentence of 5 years and five months in prison. Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley pleaded guilty and begins a sentence of more than six years on Oct. 9.
